Hello! I realised I didn’t get to blog about some of the layouts I created. Sometimes I managed to share in my Instagram or Facebook. But I try.. anyways..
Today I wanted to share a layout using some diecuts and stitching inspired by a sketch on Stuck?! Sketches. It’s the September 1st 2016 sketch –
I created this fun colorful ‘mixed media layout’ – well maybe not mixed media if you consider splatters lol
I managed to add some stamping to the background (Heidi Swapp Script background stamp). I always feel some sense of accomplishment if I use a stamp on a layout. Really.
After the patterned papers were adhered, I machine stitched the borders for interest. Then I diecut the wreath from Clique Kits (it was a free cutfile) and it’s so pretty! I backed the leaves with some scraps from Dear Lizzy Documentary collection that was in the olive green color. So I mixed up some olive green splatters from my acrylic inks and splatter away. Then I found diecuts from Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills had some pretty fun diecuts and puffy stickers that matched my color scheme pretty well. I also added the puffy hearts from Shimelle collection.
I didn’t add any journaling, so I added the Tim Holtz stickers to express some of my emotions. The small talk sticker book from Tim Holtz is really fun and has a lot of sayings I want to convey in my layouts.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
